#BALvsWAS: Overtime Observations

The Baltimore Ravens won the overtime toss and elected to receive to open overtime, beginning from their own 24. After an incomplete pass by quarterback Joe Flacco, running back Ray Rice carried the rock for a four-yard gain, setting up a 3rd and 6. Flacco was flushed out of the pocket and took off, getting just three yards.

The defense did its job.

And, on the ensuing punt, rookie cornerback Richard Crawford — returning for the first time all season — took the 56-yard kick 64 yards to the Baltimore 24-yard line.

The huge special-teams play set up a 34-yard, game-winning Kai Forbath field goal as the Redskins pulled out a inspired 31-28 win over the AFC North-leading Ravens in front of a spirited FedExField crowd.

The hero of the game, other than Crawford, is rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins, who took over for a hobbled Robert Griffin III in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter and led his team to a game-tying touchdown and two-point conversion.

    You couldn’t ask for a more exciting game. Let’s hope RGIII is OK.

    It looked like Ngata’s tackle was late if not dirty. RGIII was clearly going down (Q-back slide) and should have been only tapped down. Keep in mind also, veiled threats were made against RGIII by one or more Raven Defensive players before kick-off. NFL officials in the game were not doing enough to protect RGIII… He was taking questionable hits (incl hard pushes to the ground) well after the balls was released. Shanahans/Redskins need to step in with serious (public) complaints to the NFL now!

    Love griifin and the skins, but if you think ngatas hit was dirty you know nothing of football, griffin is great player i dont want him hurt but he dove head first for yardage and when you do that it is fair game for the defense, he needs to learn to slide feet first, had he done that and got hit would def. be a flag. Unless this was you’re first game you watched all defenses have played griffin tough because A. He is a rookie and B. They cant defend him so tgey are trying to get into his head, im glad he is ok he was trying to make plays which i respect and we all can chalk this up as a learning exp. Slide it would have been 3rd down in 4 down territory. He will learn, but please stop saying hits were dirty, the only questionable thing i saw was one play where it looked like a guy went high on griffin on a run he slid late and the guy hit his helmet to griffins helmet, but it was barely a blow couldnt see it with the naked eye it was so bang bang, but on replay it was clear. Should have been a flag but guessing the ref couldnt see it naked eye either.

    Thanks Kenny for your comments but the hits were still dirty. Raven players were hitting RGIII out of bounds or trying to slam/push him into the ground as Ngata did (late) on the injury play. RGIII had already had been hit/tackled by another Raven player and was going down. Head first or feet first for that play is irrelevant. Any ball carrier in that situation should be protected from physical contact meant to injure. Pollard (who previously made threats) hit RGIII out of bounds and helmet to helmet. No flag. Even when RGIII went back to pass from the pocket, he was on several occasions pushed hard to the ground – despite the fact that the ball had been released 2-3 seconds before. Again, no flag. There is little doubt in my mind that if Brady or Rogers were hit late like that from the pocket, flags would have been flying!

    I disagree, everything you talk about is called football, lets leave the powderpuff stuff for other sports, if this was the 80s or 90s no one would have said any of that sunday was dirty… You cant change the sport, griffin has to play smarter and not put yourself in that situation thats the solution you dont see brady manning or rodgers put themselves into that position, and rodgers runs all the time he just doesnt put himself into that situation

    Let’s just agree to disagree.
